in the first place. wall street cannot be allowed to be reinstated. it drove our economy off the cliff and people tried to punish our records but they were not the ones that drove off the cliff. yet that is where the budget goes to recoup. it's time for us to have responsible regulation that makes sense. >> thank you very much >> moderator: final question i will be asking. you have three minutes to both answer the question and then make your closing remarks. mr. renacci, you talk a lot about a bipartisan group that you are a member of, 16 members, eight republicans, eight democrats, and devotee sutton you talk about reaching across the offer cash for clunkers. no single party can have all of the good ideas. i wonder what you heard from your colleagues on the other side of the all that makes sense, and what are you doing specifically to bring the governments instead of gridlock to the nation's capital? and i think we split ahead of time, and the first response, final response will go to congresswoman sutton. sutton: thanks very much for the question. i think building those relationships
, paul is a smart guy. he has committed his life to understanding the problems of our economy, presenting a plan for the american people, so i think that paul is going to do -- going to do a great job, but i also think it's very important for people to understand, and i think people realize that joe biden is a governmented orator, he is very good at rhetoric, and i think is he very relatable so i think it's two different people, and i think it's going to be a great night. >> have you talked to ryan at all about his debate performance, what he needs to do, that whole thing? >> sure. paul is one of my very good friends. i talk to paul all the time about a lot of different things, but i think he is taking it very seriously. sure. i think both parties should be nervous. i mean, it's a big night. it's a big -- it's always going to be a big night. >> do you think it makes a difference? there are a lot of people who say, look, the debates are a side show. it's all about the top guys. do you think that ryan has to keep the momentum going from what was widely seen as a mitt romney win in denver? >
of bad stuff. just this week the libya situation put the president on the defensive. the economy speaks for itself. so the only place the voters can really see the obama-biden ticket under pressure is in the debates. on the other side we're hoping governor romney will sit for an interview with us. we're negotiating that right now. we'll have an update for you on monday. generally speaking, mr. romney has been more accessible than president obama, but it is true the romney campaign is playing it very safe. at the debate tonight, vice president biden is the experienced hand. he's 27 years older than paul ryan and biden knows how to attack. the congressman is an unknown quantity when it comes to dealing with this kind of pressure. but talking points expects mr. ryan to be armed with panels that might slow down mr. biden who will most likely go after ryan hard. be interesting to see hot congressman handles that. that's a memo. top of the story, four years ago it was sarah palin debating joe biden. >> all you got to do is go down union street and go to katy's restaurant or walk into home dep

get this balanced budget. we must get this debt under control. this debt not only hurts our economy today with the threat of higher interest rates and a losing a dollar and much higher tax rates. we know that we are giving the students here at this academy, our children and grandchildren, a lower standard of living. we've never done that in this country before. host: vice-presidential candidate paul ryan in new hampshire at a recent event. here's what you might hear from the vice-president joe biden at tonight's debate. this is from a recent campaign stop in florida. [video clip] >> there is no quit in america, folks. ladies and gentlemen, that's why i know i'm not the only one who was offended to hear governor romney write off nearly half the country is in his statement about 47% of the people being dependent. if you read the book congressman ryan has written with two other leading young members of the republican party, they talk about -- the title of the book is "young guns," and they talk about this culture of dependency in america without acknowledging that all those people -- o
with the economy. >> hey, talk about this great recession that they acknowledge as if it fell from the sky. >> he inherited a tough situation. the problem is, he didn't make things better. >> in a key interview today, cnbc provided a forum for the left, right and big business, as the united states speeds towards the fiscal cliff. >> there's nothing that will allow the fed to compensate for a total advocation of fiscal responsibility. >> they believe honestly that no congress could be this stupid and by god they can. >> we should be asking these guys running for president and every guy running for congress, what are you going to do? >> tonight, paul ryan and joe biden will have to explain. now, once again, carl waand bec. >> as the audience starts to take their seats in kentucky we want to run through what will be our pregame tonight for a vice presidential debate that has taken on much more importance than usual. >> on the docket john engler, a key state in the discussion president of the business table, david was director of the office of management and budget under president ronald reagan, a re
the inevitable ups and downs of incoming data, it appears the economy is growing at such a pace that absent policy action, progress, and reducing unemployment will likely be so for some time. in the meantime inflation is subdued, running at or below our long-run objective of 2%, while longer run inflation expectations remain well anchored. the federal funds rate were 3%, we would have in my view an open and shut case for lowering it. the complication, of course, is that the funds is at its lower bound which means we can't turn that dial further. we have to use unconventional tools such as land guidance about the future path of the funds rate. with respect to lsaps, my belief, this echos the views that chairman bernanke expressed at jackson hole, is that prior rounds of lsaps have placed a significant role in supporting activity and in preventing a worrisome undershoot of our inflation objective. the case is especially strong with respect to the first round of lsaps which was a very potent piece of policy action that helped to bring the economy back from the brink in 2009. however, we now fa
. in all three battleground states, voters by double digits believe the economy is getting better compared to the numbers back in july. >> and mark halperin, that may be the big takeaway from this poll. the race is getting much closer. nobody can predict what's going to happen. if you look at a big friend, thoug trend, you've got to look at a lot of americans in these swing states are looking at the economy saying things are getting better. >> it's clearly a huge factor and yet, obviously, the debate from denver is also a huge factor. i think, you know, we look a lot at the margin of error, and these numbers aren't shifting all that much. what's key is in a lot of the states the president is below 50. that's a danger sign for him. the economy is getting better. it all goes back to the electoral college. you play with the numbers, look at these polls, romney still has to win six or seven or maybe eight of the battleground states in order to take this. and right now he's not there. but he's in a better position clearly than he was a week ago. the economy getting better has caused romney to s
there is we have what we think is a diverse economy. we have a knowledge center in our education areas much like states like california and we were pretty good at job creation at the time he got sworn into office. and he immediately dropped us from 47th out of 50. and in the end that really doesn't surprise you. because when you look at the business experience he taughts. it had nothing to do with creating jobs it had to do with helping investors. i can tell you in my region of the state, which is the south coast area south of boston. our major initiatives he was awol in terms of working with legislatures, so job creation did not occur when he was governor. and when someone else succeeded him, we have come back to that we're ahead of the terms of the rest of the country right now in job creation. there is more to go nationwide and even in our state. but in massachusetts i know we don't want to go back and one of the things that is proof in the pudding is mitt romney never campaigns for president in massachusetts. [ laughter ] >> it's no accident that it is not a battle

in the white house? the choice is clear -- a stagnant economy that promotes more government dependency. mitt romney and i will not duck the tough issues. we will not blame others for the next four years. we will take responsibility. and we will not try to replace our founding principles. we will re-apply our founding principles. the choice is clear. the choice rests with you. and we ask you for your vote. thank you. >> martha: thank you both again. thank you very much. this concludes the vice-presidential debate. please tune in next tuesday for the second presidential debate at hoffstra yrt in new york. i'm martha raddatz of abc news. i do hope all of you go to the polls. have a good evening.

[ laughter ] >> containing the outbreak. health officials try to locate patients exposed to a deadly form of meningitis. and the firm that supplied the contaminated shots linked to the infection may have been operating illegally. >>> mayor misconduct. an elderly mayor admits to stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from her city but she's not going jail. this is the "cbs morning news" for friday, october 12, 2012. good morning. good to be with you. i'm terrell brown. compared to last week's presidential debate last night's face off between vice president joe biden and congressman paul ryan was like a shoot out at the ok corral. from the get go it was a pull no punches performance by both candidates. they squared off on everything from the economy to foreign affairs. randall pinkston is at the debate site in danville, kentucky. good morning
, growth, urn certainty in the economy. debates are a great way to tease out issues in specific. i think if the debate revolves around a look over the shoulder, that's probably a losing proposition for the democrats, if it involves a fooshd lorwardg program it's going to provide a robust -- >> you think paul ryan's got unprecedented mastery of fact and he's been studying diligently for the debate and i expect he'll come prepared to answer any question that's thrown at him. it's also not, you know, he is -- he is an ambassador and a component of the romney ticket. and he will be advancing the governor's vision in contrasting that with the president's track record of failed policies and results. >> can i jump? you used the word specifics. i want to ask a specific question about the specifics that you heard at the last deba debate. does governor romney specifically embrace simpson-bowles or does he not? he gave us both answers in the last debate. what is your understanding of the governor's approach, he's a presidential candidate, to simpson-bowles? yes or no. >> the governor's approach to
they provided points and issues on zingers and economy and debate decorum. >> mr. vice president, i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground but i think people would be better served if we don't keep interrupting each other. >> with regard to social security, we will not, we will not privatize it. if we listened to governor romney and congressman during the bush years, man where all those seniors would be now if there money had been in the market. their ideas are old and their ideas are bad and they eliminate the guaranty of medicare. >> here he is the problem. they got caught with their hands in the cookie jar turning medicare into a piggybank for obamacare. >> usually when there is a crisis we pull together. we pull together as a nation. as i said, even before we knew what happened to the ambassador the governor was holding a press conference, was holding a press conference. that is not presidential leadership. >> this is becoming more troubling by the day. they first blamed a youtube video. now trying to blame the rome rom ticket for making this an issue. with you shou
this administration-- >> let me tell you what the itoll as, the ayatollah sees his economy being crippled. the ayatollah sees there are 50% fewer exports of oil. he sees the currency going into the tank. he sees the economy going in a free-fall, and he sees the world for the first time totally united in opposition to him getting a nuclear weapon. now with regard to bb he's been my friend for 39 years. the president has met with bb as much as he's spoken to anybody. just before he went to the u.n. i was in a conference call with the president-- with him talking to bb for well over an hour. and-- and-- in stark relieve, in detail of what was going on. this is a bunch of stuff. look, here's the deal-- >> what does that mean it's of a bunch of stuff. >> it's irish. >> it is. we irish call it malarkey. >> thanks for the translation. >> the irish call it malarkey. last thing, the secretary of defense has made it absolutely clear-- he didn't walk anything back. we will not allow the iranians to get a nuclear weapon. what bb held up there was when they get to the point where they can enrich urani
campaign and white house were aware that they had a very ugly economy and the comments really do not get reelected under these types of economies. they have always come across as hungrier and more aggressive than the romney campaign. in almost every respect. they were ready for a fight from the get go. >> this is what makes the debate so puzzling. the campaign has been hungry. look at the advertising they have been running. really smart advertising. >> who is running the obama campaign? david axelrod? obama? who is running the romney campaign? is the family intervening? >> from the white house, david pluft was the campaign manager in 2008 when they were underdogs. now the senior adviser in the white house. he has the last word on most things in the campaign and in the white house. ji messina, the cam -- the campaign manager in chicago runs an organization carried on the run inside, romney, ceo. when people look back at that campaign, a big factor people will look at is how a this as a person could have created a campaign that has such fuzzy lines of accountability, a campaign management
romney is now ahead of president obama in terms of trusting him to do a better job on the economy. how much are the american people just not looking at these numbers or at least questioning their veracity? >> i think that american people are having undoubtably as much difficulty translating and interpreting the numbers as much as the professionals are. the electorate is extremely volatile. much more volatile than any person imagine. with romney's numbers bouncing as much as they did after one debate, that shows people -- i do not think it is an election of committed voters, this will be in election of leaners. they are all swaying up there. connell: a lot of people have not made up their mind. these are big moves. we head into tonight and then next week, can the president use these jobs numbers as an argument that jobs and the economy is improving? >> i think, clearly, vice president biden and mr. obama next week will use these numbers to say things are getting better. the burden will be on the opposition to explain why the economy has been as weak as it has been. i have to say, i give
the economy turned around and create jobs and move forward rather than what paul ryan and mitt romney have proposed, which is to take us back to policies that crashed our economy, that -- here's the bottom line. american voters the next 26 days will have a choice and joe biden will make this case. do we want to go back to a window of time like those under president clinton when we had the longest sustained prosperity as a result of middle class focused economic policies or do we want policies like those during the bush era that focused on tax breaks for the wealthiest and almost no regulation. i think the choice is clear. >> 9 hours, 30 minutes, you and i whether be watching along with most americans. thank you so much for your time today. >> thank you. >>> it's a high stakes debate between paul ryan and joe biden. what it will take to win. we'll hear from alan schroeder. there the debate change the momentum of the race? that's the question. tweet me your thoughts. oh no, not a migraine now. try this... bayer? this isn't just a headache. trust me, this is new bayer migraine.

're not getting that. look, we can grow this economy faster. that's what our five-point plan for a stronger middle class is all about. it's about getting 12 million jobs, higher take home pay, getting people out of poverty into the middle class. that means going with proven pro-growth policies that we know work to get people back to work. putting ideas on the table, working with democrats, that actually works sometimes. and then -- >> vice president, could we get to that issue of what you could bring as a man, human being? i'm really going to keep you to about 15 seconds here. >> he gets 40? i get 15. >> he didn't have 40. >> let me tell you, my record stands for itself. i never say anything i don't mean. everybody knows whatever i say i do. and my whole life has been devoted to leveling the playing field for middle class people. giving them an even break. treating main street and wall street the same. holding them to the same responsibility. look at my record. it's been all about the middle class. they're the people who grow this country. we think we grow the country the middle out, not from the

creator in the white house? the choice is clear. a stagnant economy that promotes more government dependency, or a dynamic growing economy that promotes opportunity and jobs? mitt romney and i will not duck the tough issues. and we will not blame others for the next four years. we will take responsibility and we will not try to replace our founding principles. we will reapply our founding princip principles. the choice is clear. and the choice rests with you. and we ask you for your vote. thank you. >> and thank you, both, again. thank you very much. this concludes the vice presidential debate. please tune in next tuesday for the second presidential debate at hofstra university in new york. i'm martha raddatz of abc news. i do hope all of you go to the polls. have a good evening. >> that was 90 minutes that felt like it was about nine minutes. a fast-moving intensely combative debate for the vice presidential debate this year, focused on complex substantial issues of foreign policy as much as it focused on economic and social issues, obviously they did not hit everything. still, n
to the path, because it's the mechanism that'll make all the difference. >> the economy plays a significant role in recruitment and retention. will the economy coupled with talks to change military retirement pay and health care have a negative impact on retaining a professional all-volunteer force? >> i don't know. but, you know, as i travel around and visit with young soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines, and i also visit the coast guard from time to time, and i ask them why'd you come in, the answers are really varied. some of them come in because they want to defend their nation, and they know the nation's at war, and then some come in, as you noted, for economic reasons. what i will tell you is it doesn't matter why they come in, but because once you get 'em and you build into them this sense of purpose and sense of belonging, another attribute, by the way, that tends to be missing in american youth as they try to figure out who and what they are. by the way, i'm not trying to recruit you, but i will tell you that i'm happy to have your kids -- [laughter] but i will tell you that one
the economy post-debate? we saw some shifting -- not a lot, but some shifting in mitt romney's favor. he's ahead on the economy in florida, ahead on the economy in virginia, but behind in ohio. it sort of tells me, that sort of explains the leads. maybe it's better, as good as any number that you have out there. >> sure. this is such an important question in terms of not only the right direction, which has gotten a little tighter in terms of people thinking things are heading a little better than they were, but in terms of the economy, romney in the driver's seat in those two states but not necessarily in ohio. and the favorable or unfavorable, very important here. romney lifted his favorabilities in all three states as a result of the debate. but in ohio, he's still upside down. obama still over 50 in all three states. so he didn't get hurt. romney got helped. the race got closer. >> we also had a conservative ideological advantage of conservative in the exit polls. what do you tell folks that look at those numbers? >> this tells you you can't weight your data by party idea. we've said
in this economy. that is one of the reasons we had last schools, about 38 schools submitted this round, where 10 or 12 years ago, we had close to 40 or 50. >> let's move to the format. tonight these two gentlemen will be seated, as were the vice presidential contenders in 2000. why is that? >> the commission has studied long and hard over the years and we think the nature and tenor of discourse changes when you are seated around a table. we recommend this time as we did four years ago that all of the debate other than the town hall meeting, which is different, which will be next week, all of them are seated at a table. four years ago, senator obama and senator mccain asked us to do one with the podium. they did the same this time with the governor and the president. we are not going to argue about the format as long as they don't touch the integrity of the format itself. we think a better format in getting full discussion of issues in depth of discussion of issues is when you are seated at a table, rather than standing behind a podium. >> no one is more aware than you of all the discussion, and
